  • Experience with Interface definition across multiple subsystems;
  • Experience with Model Based Systems Engineering with the OMG Systems Modeling Language (SysML);
  • Experience with the Department of Defense Architecture Framework (DoDAF);
  • Experience with Enterprise Architecture Tools (Commercial or open-source); and,
  • Experience with development of an integrated system model (SysML and DoDAF Diagrams).

Desired Skills:

  • Ability to perform trade studies to optimize system performance;
  • Existing Secret or TS/SCI clearance, or the ability to obtain an interim clearance within 30 days and full clearance thereafter
  • Experience with DoD Intelligence communities
  • Experience with the DoD Acquisition Process
  • SME Level Proficiency with Model Based System Engineering (Application, Development, Methodologies, Training)
  • Expertise using Cameo System Modeler and associated plugins from No Magic, Inc.
  • OMG-Certified Systems Modeling Professional™ (OCSMP™) Certification (Level 4)
  • INCOSE ASEP or CSEP (Associate or Certified Systems Engineering Professional) Certification


Senior Research Engineer (SRE) & Senior Research Scientist (SRS)

  • A Master’s degree and seven (7) years of relevant full-time experience after completion of that degree,
  • A Master’s degree and nine (9) years of relevant full-time experience after completion of a Bachelor’s degree, or
  • A Doctoral degree and four (4) years' relevant full-time experience.



  • Experience in various phases of Model Based Systems Engineering lifecycle including:
    • Architecture development for complex DoD programs that involve hardware, software, communications and networking (via DoDAF and/or SysML)
    • Model Based Systems Engineering methodology and toolsets

Other: Due to our research contracts with the US federal government, candidates for this position are required to be US Citizens, with the ability to obtain and maintain a DoD Security Clearance.
